DirectFB is not adding hardware accel to the linux-fb port, but a
hardware abstraction layer that allows you to write code for the
linux framebuffer that benefits from the capabilities of your gfx 
hardware or uses a software fallback if the desired function can 
not be mapped to hardware. Then, on top of DirectFB, there's our 
gdk-directfb backend.

The decision was made not to release this code before it has reached
a mature state. I can not do anything about this, but promise that 
you will get access to the source soon.

Salut, Sven
